”Grab Your Hat and Read with a Cat” on Read Across America Day, March 3rd

”Grab Your Hat and Read with a Cat” on Read Across America Day, March 3rd

Reading to a child to celebrate the birth of Dr. Suess is absolutely how I think he would have wanted to be remembered and honored. He had such a love of children and learning. And Dr. Suess knew the importance of learning to read and making it fun too. His use of rhyme sparked a love of words and language in many of his young readers as well as adults. So remember…

“You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.”

In celebration of the first annual Multicultural Children’s Book Day I choose to highlight “Fat Tuesday Mardi Gras La Chatte Noire” written by Todd-Michael St. Pierre and illustrated by Diane Millsap. The book is about a cat who lives in Jackson Square in the Vieux Carré (French Quarter) neighborhood of New Orleans. The cat searches for a friend and visits many historical spots in the quarter and around the city. The book is written in English and French. What a lovely tribute to the city of New Orleans!

Happy reading y’all!
